"God damn America!"

"God damn America!" This is the money quote for the 2008 elections.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Ohio shows John McCain leading both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama by identical 46% to 40% margins.
Pastor Wright screamed "God damn America!" and the congregation cheered for "God damn America!" and Obama sat in that same congregation for 20 years and never spoke a word of disapproval until he started running for President.
And NOW after 20 years in the same congregation that cheered "God damn America!" and "the U.S. of KKK-A" and all the rest of Jeremiah Wright's brain-dead hate speech, Obama thinks it's finally time to speak up! Deny everything!
I never heard those sermons!
NOW Barack Obama "vehemently disagrees" with his hate-freak pastor after 20 years!
Until the day before he announced his candidacy for President of the United States, Obama never put any distance at all between himself and Pastor Jeremiah Wright, the spiritual mentor who married him to his wife, baptized his children, and gave him the title of his book and the theme for his first big political speech at the Democratic National Convention.
Mr. Wright said that in the phone conversation in which Mr. Obama disinvited him from a role in the announcement, Mr. Obama cited an article in Rolling Stone, "The Radical Roots of Barack Obama."
The Rolling Stone article includes a long discussion of the relationship between Obama and Wright:
Wright is not an incidental figure in Obama's life, or his politics. The senator "affirmed" his Christian faith in this church; he uses Wright as a "sounding board" to "make sure I'm not losing myself in the hype and hoopla." Both the title of Obama's second book, The Audacity of Hope, and the theme for his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 come from Wright's sermons. "If you want to understand where Barack gets his feeling and rhetoric from", says the Rev. Jim Wallis, a leader of the religious left, "just look at Jeremiah Wright".
Millions of voters are looking at Jeremiah Wright, and getting ready to vote for John McCain and every other Republican all the way to the bottom of the ticket.
Coulter and Hannity and O'Reilly and McCain have their money quote for the general election, and a video to go with it, and if Barack Obama is nominated for President of the United States, Jeremiah Wright has already written an obituary for the Democratic Party.
"God damn America!"
By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned. [Matthew 12:37]
